The little-known kuruma curry is the star of the show at a southern Thai restaurant in northern Bangkok.
Tucked away in a hidden but bustling corner of Bangkok, one man serves up authentic southern chicken and beef mataba pancakes in the capital.
Where is the best place to eat papaya salad in Bangkok? It could well just be this no-name roadside stall on the outskirts of the Skytrain’s Sukhumvit line.
Stuffed murtabak pancakes are common in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, but where will you find one filled with rich and meaty deer?
A buddha head entangled in the chaotic roots of a banyan tree within the grounds of Wat Mahathat, a temple complex in the ancient Thai capital and UNESCO world heritage site of Ayutthaya, is arguably one of the most photographed of Thailand’s tourist sights.
